November: Winter birds (Birdseed part 2)
November is the time when birds' nests begin to show themselves, as the trees lose their leaves. You can read all about our homemade birdhouse and our birdseed here. We also bought a birdhouse that would attach to the outside of a window (as we don't have an easy way to attach a hanging birdhouse). It's become popular with many little birds in our neighbourhood and we have a steady stream of visitors outside our window.
We decorated with stickers and added a bell to alert us to the birds. We had our first birds this week: black-capped chickadees. They ate up all the seed in the feeder.
